Bally CFTBL: dot matrix is in French. Why?

I have the Creature From The Black Lagoon machine. I turned it on the other day and the dot matrix display is now in French along with the test modes (I can not read French). The audio is in English. Can anyone instruct me how to change the display back to English? Thank you!
 
Solution
OK, assuming you have changed the batteries and the holder is still in good order

Turn on the machine and open your coin door
4 buttons inside
the right one is 'enter'
press it until the DMD reads (Main Menu)
the button, center right '+'
press until it reads (A. Adjustments) (R. REGLAGES)
'Enter'
'A1. Standard Adjustments' ( R1. REGL. STANDARD)
'Enter'
press '+' until you get to 'A.1 21' 'R1. 21that is the language selector
'Enter'
'+' until it reads (English)'
'Enter'

Done
(THis is how it works on a Twilight Zone, CFTBL should be the same)

Hey Joe,

I couldn't tell you the answer to your questions. I guess the kids could have switched the dips but not likely. I don't even know where they are or how they should be for USA. I assume it does have the US roms because the Dot Matrix was in English before. Also, when I turned it on and the French came up it was at full volume too and I've always had the volume set to around 9. To me it seems like something got reset but that's just a guess.

changing the dips can trigger a reset.

I don't believe the dips have been changed because I don't even know where the dips are and the kids could not have opened the machine up because they don't know where the key is.
I have the Operations Manual, the Operator's Handbook, the WPC Schematic Manual, and the Electronic Coin Door Service Pamphlet but nothing out right says to change the language setting do this....
